Péssima (email hidden) pelo prédio que e velho e o cheiro da maconha pelo corredor e horrivel, o apartamento é sujo, incluindo as roupas de cama , colchões velhos e mofados, camas quebradas, o apartamento é muito mais velho do que demonstra as fotos, temos rinite alérgica e nossa primeira compra foi na farmácia, onde tivemos que comprar remédios para alergia e produtos para desinfetar a casa. Após dois dias sem dormir devido a alergia e os colchões serem estremamente velhos, entramos em contato com o anfitrião, que me deixou claro que se caso eu não tivesse gostado do apartamento era simplesmente fazer o checkout, claro que o mesmo não mencionou que devolveria o dinheiro pago, tentamos entrar em contato com airbnb mas sem sucesso, o site e burocratico e não comseguimos resolver através do site, foram verdadeiros dias de horror, tenho registrado fotos do estado do apartamento e das camas a caso de alguém precisar, realmente uma enganação, a localização é boa mas nao vale a pena , caso va tirar férias e queira o minimo de conforto e higiene não recomendo o imóvel.
The studio is very well located in South Beach, near Ocean Drive and its main attractions, the beach and a little blocks form Lincoln Promenade. It`s large and well equipped. It seems to be older than the pictures shows, but it was not a problem to us. Cleaning was good when we arrived. Roy is a great host and a very nice man, always ready to answer our questions and give support. Roy, thank you very much. It was a pleasure to meet you.
Roy was a great host. He was friendly & punctual with meeting us upon arrival. as well as with answering any questions I had before and during our stay. The apt itself was perfectly located in the heart of South Beach. It's an easy walk to the beach, Lincoln Rd, the Publix on Alton Rd, and easy to get a cab to downtown Miami. One bummer was the absence of a TV, which I don't know how I missed when I booked. In the end, it forced us to enjoy the outdoors more and helped not be lazy in starting the day. The apartment definitely looks a little older than some of the pictures, but it was very spacious and very clean. Just know the hot water works and the shower has decent water pressure, just takes a couple minutes to get warm and you have to play with the buttons on the shower head. I definitely recommended to book with Roy at this location if you're planning a trip where you actually want to get out and enjoy Miami. Overall I rate the apt 4.5 stars and Roy 5!
It is a nice small appartment next to the Ocean Drive and the beach. The way on foot to the beach is only 5 minutes. Everything you need is reachable on foot.
Roy is a nice and helpful guy and always ready to give you an answer. If you want to visit South Beach, this appartment is just right for your travel!
Roy's apartment looks a bit older than the pictures. In spite of this apartment is very convenient. Up to 7 minutes walking distance of the ocean. Prior to Lincoln roud 10 minutes. Roy is a great guy and always happy to help you. I can recommend the apartment to people who want to stay in Miami in a good place for little money. Thank you for your hospitality, Roy!
Let me start off by putting on my rose-colored glasses to say, thanks to Roy, my friends and I have thoroughly familiarized ourselves with Airbnb's Terms, the host and guest's rules and expectations, and Airbnb's protocol for dispute resolution.
Here are some of the unprofessional and downright rude things we have experienced by staying at Roy's.
1) Roy told us that the cleaning lady had cleaned the apartment 2 days before our arrival. However, we found cockroaches throughout the trip – one in the bathroom, one INSIDE the fridge, one by the handle of the fridge, one (dead) by the kitchen table (it was there when we arrived).
2) The drain in the bathtub of the apartment did not drain properly. Water began to accumulate in the tub within 2 minutes of running the water. Because of the clogged drain, the entire bathroom smelled like feet during the whole trip. Consequently, we left the bathroom window open throughout, though it didn't help eliminate the odor. Any reasonable and considerate host would have either a) fixed the drain prior to his guest's arrival or b) at least have made us aware of the problem beforehand. He did neither.
3) Finally, the part that left all of us flabbergasted was that after we left his apartment, he accused us of making a hole by the drain and demanded $50 to be deducted from our security deposit! How would three female make a noticeable hole in the bathtub and would $50 really fix the hole? Further, in the picture he texted us as evidence, the bathtub color was white, but his bathtub is blue. Upon researching the Airbnb's Terms thoroughly, we kindly drafted an email to let him know of appropriate next steps - namely further evidence; and the listed the things he didn't follow according to the Airbnb's Host Obligations. In response, he called us "blind," "liar," and "cheap."
All this to say, we settled the dispute to our favor, but the process was drawn out, a waste of time and unpleasant.
Hope this review will assist the Airbnb Community in making sound choices. Or to say it bluntly, just avoid booking with Roy.
Frist of all the location was simply great. Quality-price ratio is good. Apartment was comfortable and clean. Good place to be when visiting the south beach area. Roy was very helpful and replied our questions immediately.
Wonderfully located, well furnished, I really enjoyed the apartment and the kindness of Mr. Roy Barzilai. I'll be back soon for sure!
We had a great time in Miami. The apartament is very cool and the position is Perfect. You are near to everything in South Beach. Roy is nice and always tray to solve your problem. Hope to enjoy again!!!
